2 Welcome to the CONFESSIONALITY AND UNIVERSITY IN THE MODERN WORLD 20th Anniversary of Károli University conference! Károli University was founded by the General Assembly of the Reformed Church in Hungary in In establishing our University, the General Assembly remained true to the fundamental truths as revealed in the Scriptures, as well as to its heritage, and voted to continue these traditions for the benefit of our nation. Károli Gáspár University of the Reformed Church in Hungary is proud of guaranteeing educational facilities for students and assisting in the development of their academic potential; following in the footsteps of many centuries of Reformed and Hungarian higher education. This conference is an opportunity to reflect upon the great achievements made in the field of academic programs in the past 20 years and take a look into the future opportunities. We hope you will find this program an inspirational and truly memorable event dedicated to the anniversary. TUESDAY, 15TH OCTOBER CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITIES PANEL Opening greetings 60 min.
